I've been playing guitar on and off (mostly off) for the past 15 years. I came to Daniel to learn music theory, improve my rhythm, and learn the skills I need to confidently show up to a jam session with other musicians. In just a few lessons, I've significantly improved in each of those areas at Daniel's instruction. He REALLY knows his stuff and quickly hones in on your strengths/weaknesses and has great advice for how to improve on your weaknesses.

If you are looking for a guy that can teach you the basics of how to play an instrument, or someone that can take you from just learning songs online to being able to create your own songs and jam with other musicians, Daniel is your guy.

I started taking fiddle lessons with Daniel having basically zero experience with the instrument, and in just a handful of weeks, I can't believe how much I've learned! Daniel really excels at tailoring his teaching to my individual needs, interests, and pace of learning. Each week I leave feeling challenged and motivated, but never frustrated. I'm having a great time, and always look forward to my next lesson.
Michelle B.
Daniel is so patient and easy to work with ~ he makes learning the cello seem so easy and natural and has so many practical ways of explaining an instrument I have no prior knowledge of. I had never played a stringed instrument but always loved the cello, so I was a bit nervous to begin. His gentle nature and patience have made me even more enthusiastic to learn. I have been loving each lesson and look forward to the next each time I leave! I'm looking forward to next week already! :-)

Great teacher.

I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

Jamie worked with me when I was trying to pick up cello after not playing since high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. He's very good at identifying problems with technique and suggesting approaches to fix them, and fun to work with.

We didn’t have a cello teacher in our small town so we decided to try taking online lessons. Jessica took my daughter through Suzuki books 1-6. She was very personable and very focused. She kept my daughter motivated and even allowed performance opportunities (Skyping into recitals). We have since moved to a bigger city and my daughter takes live lessons. Her new teacher (who has a doctorate in cello performance) was very impressed with my daughter’s technique. Thanks Jessica for giving my daughter a great musical foundation!

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

Experienced cellist with very active playing career in orchestra, chamber music, and solo repertoire. 5 years of experience teaching young advancing cellists. Currently pursuing a Bachelor's in Cello Performance, and I keep myself very busy performing across the country, because I believe staying very active performing helps keep me fresh and interested in always finding new solutions which I can pass to my students. Lessons focus on good sound and developing nuanced and musically interesting and innovative interpretations of pieces.

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …
